Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…



• I’m currently reading…
• Up next I think I’ll read…
• I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
• I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
• I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
• I can’t wait to get a copy of…
• I wish I could read ___, but…
• I blogged about ____ this past week…

This week’s random question: Have you joined any challenges in reading for the new year? Do you have any general goals book or even not book related for 2017?

I've joined the Goodreads challenge! My goal is 60 books, same goal as last year--which I surpassed--but I want a goal I feel comfortable with, so that the reading is pleasurable and not forced.

Still haven't decided if I'm going to join another challenge, like Modern Mrs. Darcy's or Natural Beach Living's Reading Challenge. There's a clearing house of sorts with a lot of challenges. Plus, I'm sure there's a great Bingo challenge out there, too.

Here's another one...

Good luck with your challenge. I set a Goodreads goal of 50 for this year. That's probably more than I will get to, but we'll see how it goes. If you want to check out all my goals, you can visit http://thebookconnectionccm.blogspot.com/2017/01/musing-monday-january-2.html

Happy new year!

I made my goal for 40 books this year. I hope I can do it!!

I set my reading goal at 52 for the same reason - I know I'll surpass it but I don't want to force reading, that is the worst. (http://twobirds1blog.blogspot.ca/2017/01/musing-mondays-what-im-reading-my-2017.html)

This is my first year for a reading challenge. I originally started with 15, but didn't want to sell myself short, LOL, so I doubled it. I'm shooting for 15 books from the Sci-Fi and Fantasy group's bookshelf, and 15 from everything else. My goal is to get all these from my local library, which I absolutely LOVE. :)
